ARISS contact planned for Venta School, Carp, Ontario, Canada
International Space Station radio contact has been planned for Jeff
Williams KD5TVQ with participants at Venta School, Carp, Ontario,
Canada. The event is scheduled Monday 30 May 2016 at approximately 19:01
The amateur radio contact will be a telebridge contact
operated by IK1SLD in northern Italy. The downlink signals should be
audible over parts of Europe. Interested parties are invited to listen
in on 145.800 MHz narrowband FM.
Preparatory School is a small day and boarding school from Junior
Kindergarten to Grade 10, located just outside of Ottawa in Carp,
Ontario. We foster and continually enhance an environment where each
student can grow and achieve their highest potential.
Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:
1) Maggie: How do different cultural backgrounds of the astronauts impact space station life?
2) Ashton: What are the topics of conversation between the different astronauts given they are from different countries?
3) Samuel: What is the common language on board the space station? Is there a common language that all must speak?
4) Kyota: Do you use personal tablets or electronic devices on board – can an IPhone work in space?
5) Alexis: How do you feel both emotionally and physically on the space station?
6) Eren: Are your meals decided for you or do you have a choice – can you bring favorite items with you from earth?
7) Anika: Do you envision a future space station with hundreds of people on board?
8) Kampbell: What specific work or research are you doing during your mission on the space station?
Olivia: How does the line of authority work on the space station – does
the commanding officer have final say on all decisions?
10) Aparna: What are your favorite views of earth?
11) Cadence: With fans/equipment running, is it noisy or quiet on board?
12) Russell: What are the temperatures and climate settings like? Is it cool and who controls this?
is an international educational outreach program partnering the
volunteer support and leadership from AMSAT and IARU societies around
the world with the ISS space agencies partners: NASA, Russian Space
Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA.
ARISS offers an opportunity for
students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking
directly with crewmembers on-board the International Space Station.
Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and
crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters' interest in science,
technology, and learning.
